Oprah Winfrey is the latest star maker. Even though The Oprah Winfrey Show finished on 25 May, Oprah still continues in the TV industry with her OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) network. The philosophy of OWN is “live your best life”.
In keeping with this philosophy, the network, in conjunction with the company behind Secret Millionaire and Celebrity Wife Swap, is looking to make people stars in their new show Secret Talent Scout.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Secret Talent Scout will center on a group of talent scouts who go undercover in search of untapped talent across the U.S. The scouts will give the deserving performers with great stories their big break, and then reveal themselves.”
The series doesn’t have an air date yet but 6 episodes have been commissioned.
So, if you’re in the US, and you’re talented, who knows you could be the world’s next big star!
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
